If you dread going to the dentist, you are not alone. Millions of Americans cope with dental anxiety. But you shouldn’t let that prevent you from getting proper dental care. At Create A Smile in Bloomington IN, we provide sedation dentistry to help you through your appointment.
Because knowledge is power, we also take the time to explain the findings of your initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended procedures. At that time, we’ll talk about whether you’d benefit from sedation.
- One option is laughing gas. Laughing gas has a long history in dentistry, and is known as a safe and effective means of relaxing our patients. When your procedure is over it wears off quickly, and there are no side effects.
- Oral conscious sedation is the next level of sedation dentistry. It involves taking a sedative about an hour before your appointment. You’ll be awake for the procedure, but you won’t be very aware of what’s going on around you. You’ll need to have someone give you a ride home when it’s over.
At Create A Smile in Bloomington IN, your comfort is always our top priority. Don’t compromise your dental health because of anxiety; ask about sedation dentistry. We provide a full range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, along with general dentistry.
